Handmade jewellery telling stories of the northern past and mythology
Käsintehtyjä koruja jotka kertovat tarinoita pohjoisen menneisyydestä ja mytologiasta
Handmade in Finland, this jewellery collection reflects a deep connection to Nordic symbolism. It’s carefully crafted from natural materials like clay, copper, gemstones, and glass. The pieces have a rustic, artisanal charm and an antique look that enhances their appeal. I make most of these items in small quantities, with some being one-of-a-kind pieces. Each piece is genuinely unique because I create most parts from scratch, using materials such as clay or copper.
Inspired by the Northern past and mythology, my designs feature motifs from Stone Age rock paintings, indigenous Finnish artifacts, and mythical creatures like bears and ravens. Ancient runic inscriptions, especially those about love, play a significant role in shaping the stories behind my creations.
